Like the old days? NXT has been changed in a big way over the last few months and that very well may continue to be the case. The roster is almost unrecognizable since its relaunch in September and there is nothing to suggest that WWE is done shaking it up. However, we might even be in for another huge shakeup, which some fans have been wanting to see for a long time now.
According to the WrestleVotes Twitter account, the original plan for the NXT 2.0 relaunch would have called for NXT to switch from TV-PG to TV-14. There is still a chance that this could happen in the future as the USA Network has signed off on the idea. However, it is not clear if WWE wants to go through with the change. If they decide to do so, it is not clear when the change would be or how long it would take.
Within the origins of this NXT 2.0 concept was an idea that the programs rating would shift from TV-PG to TV-14. Source confirms that’s still very much on the table and USA Network is not opposed. If / when WWE decides to make the change is TBD.

NXT could use the change. Check out some of its previous all time great moments:
Opinion: This is the kind of thing that WWE fans have been wanting for years, either in NXT or in WWE, and now they might be getting it. That has my interest up, as I’m curious to see how things go when there are fewer restrictions. At the same time though, a lack of a filter isn’t going to matter without some other changes taking place. Scripted promos from inexperienced wrestlers are not the ultimate change and it might be tricky to see just how well things work out.
What do you think of the change? How much could it help? Let us know in the comments below.
